Miss Martin’s Wedding

Don’t be put off by the rather ordinary title! It’s a wicked good tune. I assume it’s a Highland bagpipe tune. Here’s battlefield Band playing it (starts about 1:58): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TX5RbEXjdPI


I tried to copy it here as closely to that video as possible, as it’s the only version I’ve heard of it. Here is bogman’s (https://thesession.org/members/6479 - a GHB player’s) transcription:

It ain’t easy on the fiddle — that dGfg | dGfg dGBG is a b*tch. But worth it!
